Subject[PATCH 00/12] mm/debug_vm_pgtable: Enhancements
Date
There are couple of issues with current implementations and this series
tries to resolve the issues:

(a) All needed information are scattered in variables, passed to various
test functions. The code is organized in pretty much relaxed fashion.

(b) The page isn't allocated from buddy during page table entry modifying
tests. The page can be invalid, conflicting to the implementations
of set_{pud, pmd, pte}_at() on ARM64. The target page is accessed
so that the iCache can be flushed when execution permission is given
on ARM64. Besides, the target page can be unmapped and access to
it causes kernel crash.

"struct vm_pgtable_debug" is introduced to address issue (a). For issue
(b), the used page is allocated from buddy in page table entry modifying
tests. The corresponding tets will be skipped if we fail to allocate the
(huge) page. For other test cases, the original page around to kernel
symbol (@start_kernel) is still used.

The patches are organized as below. PATCH[2-10] could be combined to one
patch, but it will make the review harder:

PATCH[1] introduces "struct vm_pgtable_debug" as place holder of all
needed information. With it, the old and new implementation
can coexist.
PATCH[2-10] uses "struct vm_pgtable_debug" in various test functions.
PATCH[11] removes the old implementation.
PATCH[12] fixes the issue of corrupted page flag for ARM64
